ICT Overview

Students today are using the immense power of digital media to explore, connect, create, and learn in ways never before imagined. With this power, young people have extraordinary opportunities to reach their fullest potential.

As a result, we in the ICT department strive to be at the forefront of technological trends so that we can provide a safe, caring environment in which all students can achieve their potential whilst helping them to become independent learners, with the skills and knowledge to help them succeed in the future.

We also take pride in providing the school with a excellent IT service, allowing staff and students to enjoy the best that technology has to offer, whilst being in a safe and supported environment. All our staff within the department are passionate about ICT, and this is apparent in the way we interact with our staff and students, with teaching and learning being our top priority. With our integrated custom Helpdesk system, we are able to respond to all queries well within our SLA’s ensuring that staff are supported whether inside or outside of the classroom.


In KS4 students follow the Cambridge iGCSE ICT course, and it is designed to be run over the course of two years. The Information Communication Technology syllabus encourages students to develop lifelong skills, which will be useful to them in their work across the curriculum and prepare them for future employment. It also aims to encourage the exploration and study of ICT in a variety of contexts: home, community, business, industry, recreation and education.

In any given situation students will have the opportunity to acquire competence, ability and critical skills through the implementation, use and evaluation of a range of ICT systems. Students can develop their interests in, enjoyment of and critical reflections on ICT as an integral part of modern society.

The syllabus combines theoretical and practical studies focusing on the ability to use common software applications to solve problems, including word processors, spreadsheets, databases, interactive presentation software, web browsers and website design. Students analyse, design, implement, test and evaluate ICT systems, ensuring that they are fit for purpose.

The aim of the Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science syllabus is to encourage learners to develop an understanding of the fundamental principles of computer science and how computer programs work in a range of contexts.

Learners will study topics including information representation, communication and Internet technologies, hardware, software development, and relational database modelling. As they progress, learners will develop their computational thinking and use problem solving to develop computer-based solutions using algorithms and programming languages. Studying Cambridge International AS and A Level Computer Science will help learners develop a range of skills such as thinking creatively, analytically, logically and critically.

They will also be able to appreciate the ethical issues that arise with current and emerging computing technologies. Computer Science is a discipline which requires thinking both in abstract and in concrete terms. On a higher level, computer science is concerned with problem solving: modelling and analysing problems, designing solutions, and implementing them. Problem solving requires precision, creativity, and careful reasoning.
